Chateau Du Courlat Cuvee Jean-Baptiste, Bordeaux, France, 2016 (750ml)

TASTING NOTES

This 100% Merlot is crafted from a selection of the estate’s best grapes grown on clay-loam soils. In terms of vinification, the grapes undergo an extended maceration on the skins for about 30 days. The wine is then matured in fine grained French oak barrels 30% new) for 15 months. The result – a very rich and plush wine on the palate, it displays complex aromas of plum, blackberry and Asian spice notes. Drinking very nicely now, it has a bright future ahead of it.
